Abstract

A patient's portable bed defined as a very special designed bed used for patients denotes the "special design" of such a device which has typical features meeting the needs of a bedridden patient. It is also defined as an advanced device or mechanism used to carry and transfer a patient's body which is typically developed to meet the patient's physical demands such as mobility or movement. A new method in a rehabilitation bed for transporting a bedridden patient is developed and applied to avoid staying at hospital with costly medical treatment and such obstacles, therefore to conquer these problems, the proposed design of the bed is formulated based on literature survey as well as consult the medical staff. This paper discusses the specification,mechanism design and evaluating healthcare activities for development of a new style of active bed that provides high mobility with comfortable sleeping for bedridden persons and it also can meet the demands of those who may be required to take hospital beds to use at home particularly in a case of nursing disabled persons.
